The Decline of Men

Guy Garcia has written a new book, The Decline of Men: How the American Male is Tuning Out, Giving Up and Flipping Off His Future.

Garcia contends that Barack Obama is a new kind of man. He says, "Does his tendency toward negotiation over aggression, communication over silence and compassion over ruthless ambition point the way to a more humane and sustainable form of masculinity? So far, the answer is yes. Most Americans, male and female, have accepted him as the new model for the world's most powerful man--and, by implication, all men. That is a big change, and a reason for hope."

Garcia is the CEO of Mentametrix, a research and marketing consultancy based in New York.
